Willie Kealy: Enda Cowen or Brian Kenny? Sometimes it's hard to tell
There's something disturbingly familiar about our silent Taoiseach
WE USED to have a Taoiseach who couldn't or wouldn't communicate.
I think wouldn't is probably the correct word, because when Brian Cowen was first elevated to the position, he made it clear that he was definitely not going to be as media friendly as his immediate predecessor. He was, in fact, going to be determinedly media unfriendly.
So he didn't do interviews as a rule.
